A perfect smile can lose its luster to discolouration, cracks, stains, chips or other cosmetic flaws. Ananthan & Associates Dental Studio provides patients who qualify with dental bonding – a procedure that helps conceal minor imperfections that may hinder your confidence.
With several cosmetic dental procedures available, it can be overwhelming to choose the right option. Although porcelain veneers are an excellent option – they can be a little more costly and create discomfort for some. Dental bonding is a less invasive, quick and inexpensive solution in concealing flaws.
Some of the common issues we use dental bonding for include discoloration, cracked, chipped, undersized and misshapen teeth.
The material we use for dental bonding is a composite resin, which is hardened by shining a special kind of light onto it. During the process, the dentist will reshape the material to ensure a perfect shape around your teeth.
The first step consists of placing an etching solution on your tooth – this will help strengthen the bond between the bonding material and the tooth. In the second step, the composite resin is added in layers and is shaped accordingly. Finally, the bonding material is shaped and polished to ensure it is smooth and matches the other teeth.
Generally, a dental bonding procedure takes one to two hours to complete, depending on the complexity.
We’ve had numerous satisfied patients who’ve benefited from cosmetic dental bonding. Bonded teeth are no different from your regular teeth – they will look, feel and function just like any others.
